Teacher placed on leave after allegedly calling 12-year-old 'terrorist' - Houston Chronicle: Waleed, a well-spoken young man who wore a button-down dress shirt and navy slacks, said the teacher reprimanded him after he began laughing during a class movie Thursday afternoon.

"I was just laughing, and the teacher was like, 'I wouldn't be laughing if I was you.' So I said 'Why?' And she said, 'Because we all think you're a terrorist,'‚ÄČ" he said at a news conference Friday.

After her statement, Waleed said his classmates began laughing and taunting him with insults, such as "You have bombs" and "I can see the bombs."

The pre-teen said he was crushed by the insult from the teacher and response from his classmates.

"I was upset, and I felt like that they all were looking at me and they were laughing at me," he said.
